It seems that tattoo’s are all over the place nowadays – that is literally and figuratively. Just the other day my boys bought a sweet that had a ‘free’ tattoo inside. They were delighted of course & we had to help them to put it on. In fact, we also had to get one – so now I have this funny looking ‘thing’ on my arm. Thankfully it will come off in a few days.
It is easy to wear a fake tattoo for a week and then wash it off – but the real tattoo’s last forever. Do we ‘mark’ ourselves as Believers for a while and then ‘wash’ off the evidence when we lose interest or when things get difficult? Are we ready to cover ourselves with ‘Spiritual Tattoo’s’ – characteristics that are life-changing and which portray our allegiance to Jesus?
"And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit” – Ephesians 1:13
